On Could also 22, 2017, amidst the tons of or hundreds of Twitter accounts which will likely be created, one rose above all others. Merely called “#DarkUniverse,” the sage sent out two tweets, signifying the initiating of any other shared movie universe that will cease up consisting of 1 movie, Tom Cruise’s The Mummy.
At 10: 03 AM PT / 1: 03 PM ET, a tweet used to be unleashed onto the plenty that simply said, “Welcome to a fresh world of gods and monsters.” It featured a video consisting of clips from basic Trendy Photos movies worship Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy, The Invisible Man, Bride of Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, The Phantom of the Opera, and Creature from the Murky Lagoon. It also linked to the now defunct Darkuniverse.com, which presently brings you to the Trendy Photos situation.
Then again, what bought most participants talking used to be the 2nd–and final–tweet from the Murky Universe sage, which begged onlookers to leer the initiating of a fresh cinematic universe with its stars that will absolutely develop an eternal franchise.
The actors in the picture had been ready to recall their build of abode in the spotlight already. Russell Crowe, Tom Cruise, and Sofia Boutella had been a month some distance from making their debut in The Mummy, with the trio playing Dr. Jekyll, Cut Morton, and Ahmanet respectively. Javier Bardem used to be forged to play Frankenstein’s Monster in Bride of Frankenstein. Johnny Depp used to be going to play The Invisible Man. It is frequently fun to stamp that Cruise determined to head as informal as that that it’s likely you’ll per chance well factor in for this composite picture shoot.
Sadly, when The Mummy hit theaters, it only made $80 million domestically ($409 million worldwide) on a reported funds of $125 million in accordance with Box Office Mojo. Despite the truth that those worldwide numbers could per chance peep correct, it wasn’t ample to present Trendy a motive to slither forward. And realistically, an $80 million recall for a summer blockbuster movie with a huge forged worship The Mummy had is dazzling embarrassing. It also didn’t abet that critics had been not a fan of the movie.
The manner forward for the Murky Universe used to be immediate canceled. Fortunately, from the ashes of the failed delivery all of us witnessed the initiating to, we bought a blinding correct awe movie out of it. Trendy pivoted and said that the manner forward for the flicks would focal level on solo tales, rather than interconnected ones. This lead Jason Blum and Blumhouse productions to recall over The Invisible Man–with out Johnny Depp–and it could per chance per chance also be written and directed by Upgrade’s Leigh Whannell. The fresh recall on the movie starred Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Myth) as a girl who escapes an abusive relationship and ends up being jumpy by an invisible man.
Future Trendy monster movies are mute in the works in some plan, but worship Invisible Man, nothing is determined in stone at the moment.
